Ben M. (“Bud”) Brigham, Executive Chairman commented, “Our diversified top-tier mineral portfolio continued to deliver with outstanding 16% sequential growth in production volumes, almost double the year ago period. Further, despite the 8% reduction in lower 48 horizontal rig activity from the second to the third quarter, we experienced an increase in rigs running and net royalty acres being drilled during the third quarter, directly evidencing our 'best of the best' mineral position, where operators maintain or even increase drilling on their most economic locations when the pressure is elevated to deliver returns on capital. Therefore, our business model has repeatedly proven to be less vulnerable to macro headwinds. The third quarter was also exciting in terms of our accretive deployment of significant mineral acquisition capital, which was almost entirely allocated to the Permian Basin. Our team executed approximately $99.0 million of mineral acquisitions that will provide substantial production and cash flow growth in the months and years to come and increase value for our shareholders. The continued 'ground game' execution by our business development and technical evaluation teams drives the increase in our mineral acquisition budget for the full year 2019 to $205 - $235 million, again largely anticipated to be deployed to Permian Basin opportunities in the upcoming quarter.”

Robert M. (“Rob”) Roosa, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “During the third quarter, we saw active drilling and permitting activity across our portfolio that we believe will contribute to continued significant production and cash flow growth over the next 12 to 18 months. Our net DUC inventory increased 17% from the second quarter to 6.2 net locations as a result of the strong drilling activity on our organic portfolio as well as contributions from our third quarter acquisitions. We anticipate that well capitalized, high quality companies including Royal Dutch Shell, ExxonMobil, Continental Resources, Occidental Petroleum and Marathon Oil will operate more than 50% of our third quarter net DUC inventory and we anticipate these DUCs will be turned in line to production over the next six to twelve months. Our net permit inventory increased 25% from the second quarter to 4.5 net locations, which was largely driven by permitting of our organic undeveloped locations as well as permits associated with our third quarter acquisitions. Importantly, as a result of both our organic activity and acquisitions executed since the beginning of the year, we believe our full year 2020 production volumes will average between 9,500 and 10,500 Boe/d.”

Blake C. Williams, Chief Financial Officer, added, “We continue to be extremely pleased with our financial performance, especially our record revenues and Adjusted EBITDA (1) generated during the third quarter. Our strong 16% sequential production growth, largely driven by our Permian and Anadarko assets, offset the downturn in commodity price realizations, lower lease bonus revenues, and cash taxes incurred. Our discretionary cash flow per share of Class A common stock was $0.37 on a pre-tax basis, which was up 9% from the second quarter, and $0.33 per share on a post-tax basis. Our ability to hold the dividend flat this quarter underscores our strategy’s capacity to deliver superior risk-adjusted return for our shareholders.”

OPERATIONAL UPDATE

Mineral and Royalty Interest Ownership Update

During the third quarter 2019, the Company closed 65 transactions acquiring 5,100 net royalty acres (standardized to a 1/8th royalty interest), for $99.0 million, in the Permian, SCOOP/STACK and Williston Basins. The acquired minerals are anticipated to deliver near-term production growth with 84 gross DUCs (1.6 net DUCs) and 36 gross permits (0.5 net permits). As of September 30, 2019, the Company had acquired roughly 79,200 net royalty acres, across 39 counties in what the Company views as the cores of the Permian Basin in West Texas and New Mexico, the SCOOP/STACK plays in the Anadarko Basin of Oklahoma, the Denver-Julesburg (“DJ”) Basin in Colorado and Wyoming and the Williston Basin in North Dakota.

DUC Conversions Updates

The Company saw significant conversion of its DUC inventory during the third quarter with approximately 245 gross (1.8 net) horizontal wells converted to production, which represented 26% of its gross DUC inventory (35% of net DUCs) as of second quarter 2019. Thus far in 2019, the Company has converted 70% of its gross DUC inventory (80% of its net DUC inventory) on hand at the end of 2018. As a result, we are on pace to exceed the 88% of year end 2017 gross DUCs converted during the entirety of 2018.

FINANCIAL UPDATE

For the three months ended September 30, 2019, crude oil, natural gas and NGL production volumes, increased 98% to 7,828 Boe/d as compared to the same prior year period, due to a 143% increase in Permian Basin volumes and a 123% increase in Anadarko Basin volumes.

The third quarter 2019 average realized prices were $53.61 per barrel of oil, $1.60 per Mcf of natural gas, and $10.96 per barrel of NGL, for a total equivalent price of $33.51 per Boe, excluding the effect of derivative instruments. This represents a 10% decrease relative to second quarter 2019 and is 26% lower than year-ago levels of $45.26 per Boe.

The Company’s net income was $8.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019, net of $1.7 million of non-cash share-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA was $19.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019, up 24% relative to the same prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA ex lease bonus was $18.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019, up 37% from the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA ex lease bonus are non-GAAP financial measures. For a definition of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA ex lease bonus and a reconciliation to our most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, please read "Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.

As of September 30, 2019, the Company had a cash balance of $25.8 million and $90.0 million of capacity on its revolving credit facility, providing the Company with total liquidity of $115.8 million. The Company’s debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio was 0.6 times when annualizing the last quarter’s results, which displays Brigham’s commitment to limited leverage. As of November 6, 2019, the Company increased its borrowing base under its revolving credit facility to $150 million from $135 million, adding additional capacity to execute mineral acquisitions.

BRIGHAM MINERALS THIRD QUARTER 2019 EARNINGS CONFERENCE CALL

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA ex lease bonus, and Discretionary Cash Flow are non-GAAP supplemental financial measures used by our management and by external users of our financial statements such as investors, research analysts and others to assess the financial performance of our assets and their ability to sustain dividends over the long term without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis.

We define Adjusted Net Income as net income (loss) before loss on extinguishment of debt. We define Adjusted EBITDA as adjusted net income (loss) before depreciation, depletion and amortization, share based compensation expense, interest expense, gain or loss on sale and distribution of equity securities, gain or loss on derivative instruments and income tax expense, less other income and gain or loss on sale of oil and gas properties. We define Adjusted EBITDA ex lease bonus as Adjusted EBITDA further adjusted to eliminate the impacts of lease bonus revenue we receive due to the unpredictability of timing and magnitude of the revenue. We define Discretionary Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA, less cash interest expense and cash taxes.

Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA ex lease bonus, and Discretionary Cash Flow do not represent and should not be considered alternatives to, or more meaningful than, net income, income from operations, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP as measures of our financial performance. Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA ex lease bonus, and Discretionary Cash Flow have important limitations as analytical tools because they exclude some but not all items that affect net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Our computation of Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA ex lease bonus, and Discretionary Cash Flow may differ from computations of similarly titled measures of other companies.

The following tables present a reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA ex lease bonus, and Discretionary Cash Flow to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure for the periods indicated.
